Happy Belated Birthday wishes. Tried to get to you on the proper day but the site was having a bad day and would not let me reach you by that method. Hope it was great. Keep smiling and celebrating this 79th year.

Have been using ZOOM with relatives which led to searches of photos. Came across my childhood home at 5200 Shoreview Ave (aka earlier as 26 Ave So). Only home I knew until I married. Please post with the pictures of other childhood homes requested earlier. Stay SAFE

Charlie Jirousek was a talented, unique person who marched to his own drummer.  We met in my junior year at RHS in 1957 and remained close friends ever since.  When I blinded myself that year, he freely gave of his time and effort to help me get through high school.  We stayed close for the next six years, until I moved to Iowa to finish college.  After that we maintained a long-distance friendship.

During those six years we had many adventures together, ranging from night-time smelt fishing on Lake Superior, to late-night excursions to the Dinkytown music scene, to road trips, and to even building and flying huge kites that lifted us off the ground -- and many more too numerous to recount here.  

As we narrowed focus about our futures, Charlie went to work for one of the world’s finest guitar makers – Gibson – after earning his degree at the U of Minnesota Forestry School, while I went my way in university communications and academic management.

Conversations with Charlie were always a delight as he transitioned to self-employment as a gifted luthier who built, repaired and collected stringed instruments – including guitars, mandolins, and ukuleles – through his company Arrowhead Music in Safety Harbor, Florida. Once he told me his personal collection included more than 200 instruments.

I will greatly miss his free spirit and his loyal friendship.
